NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The day has finally arrived and people from all over the country have gathered in New Orleans for the Mardi Gras comeback celebration!

Check out some of our Carnival highlights from WGNO’s favorite personalities, such as Curt Sprang and LBJ, as well as award-winning photojournalist Jeff Kent.

The video posted at the top of the page shows the 26-float procession ends with royalty reigning over the 150th Anniversary of Rex.

This year, this year’s King of Carnival, investment banker James Reiss III, and his queen, University of Texas student Elinor Pitot, wave their scepters and greet their guests at the invitation-only.
